Yesterday I had to do a bit of shopping at a store not far from us, about 5pm. I picked up everything I needed, paid for it, then walked back to the car. I noticed the sunlight looked different so I looked up into the sky. Seems the fire picked up again. They said the winds kept changing directions. On top of that it was 100 degrees. The smoke looked more like a thunderhead, with a bit of sun around the edges.

I was putting the groceries in the car when I noticed the fire/smoke again.

The reason I had my camera with me was because not far from where I parked
is a man made pond. Last week DH and I saw a Mama Duck with 8 babies walking in the parking lot. We were afraid they would get hurt, so we escorted them back to the pond, which is behind a fence. Yesterday I think I saw the mama , but only 2 of the babies. Their pictures didn't turn out. They were so far away, and so small. I will try again though. I did get a few pictures. This week's assignment for Shutterbugs is "silhouette" I have to say that's how my pictures turned out due to the Smokey skies.

Have a good Monday!
